AFRICA IS ALIVE AGAIN!

Africa is alive again!

The hill winds shall blow this afternoon

from whence we shall not see the moon

The stars shall hide beyond the sky dark sheep

that comes to awaken the earth from its dry sleep

Every life above the ground spring

women with hoes happily sing

Africa is alive again

The farms shall sprout vegetables and grain

The moist soil prickles my sole

to join me with my forefathers heart and soul

the morning dew wets my feet

I tighten machete grip for the day’s feat

Clear the land, sort the seeds

as the morning rituals proceeds

the sparrows from tree to tree play their lute

that makes the village soloist mute

The ever desolate grassland blooms

new grass for thatches and brooms

no longer shall we watch the stars from the hearth

no longer shall dust and thirst dwell the face of earth

the farms shall sprout vegetables and grain

Africa is alive again!
